Dirty Dozen/Clean Fifteen

Lately I've been trying to buy more organic food. However, it has caused me to literally run out of grocery money from time to time. Not good!! Inorganic food is certainly much better than no food at all I'd say!! Anyway, Luke found a list of what foods to buy organic and what foods are OK to buy the regular way. Here's the results:

The Dirty Dozen (buy these organic!):
1. Peach (worst)
2. Apple
3. Bell Pepper
4. Celery
5. Nectarine
6. Strawberries
7. Cherries
8. Kale
9. Lettuce
10. Grapes
11. Carrots
12. Pear (best)

The clean 15 (lowest in pesticides):
1. Onion (best)
2. Avocado
3. Sweet Corn
4. Pineapple
5. Mango
6. Asparagus
7. Sweet Peas
8. Kiwi
9. Cabbage
10. Eggplant
15.Sweet Potato (worst)

Do you buy organic?

Mama's Girl

Hi, I'm Cassie, and I am a 26 year old Mama's girl.

Today I spent the day with my Mama! I LOVE my Mom! She keeps Matthew for me for a couple of hours on Tuesday mornings while I work. After work today my mom and I talked all about everything, then we went to her house and pushed Matthew for a stroll in the BEAUTIFUL spring sun! Then we had a salad for lunch at her house, and before I knew it was time to pick up my sweet girlie from KU. I had fun with my mom today!

Thanks, God, for my awesome Mama!

And here is an Easter picture of my kids, Matthew's eyes are a little katywankus. I guess the picture caught him mid blink?

Attention to Detail

Sometimes I become awe-struck by God. Now is one of those moments. He is so big, so strong, and so mighty . . . you know the rest of that tune. But he is also so small, so gentle, and so intricate.
He is doing things today, that will not come to maturity, or even be important for 10 years. He was doing things 20 years ago . . . small details, that finally make sense today.
He does not spend time explaining himself, he simply does what he is doing. He does it quietly, he does it so perfectly, and so consistently that many scientists think it is happening spontaneously.
He is like the great care-taker. Keeping things alive . . . the plants, the birds. He's also the great provider.
And he is so confident in his creations, trusting that they will perform exactly as he instructed.

Also . . .

Look who's walking!
